Yesterday was James's second Christmas, and it was a good one, for the most part. James has molars coming in right now, so he was CRANKY all day long.
In the morning, we skyped with Mimi and Grandpa, which brought us up to naptime with still half the presents (from us) to go. Then after he woke up early from his nap wailing (only sleeping for 30 min), we skyped with his great-grandparents, grandma, and great-aunt and opened up the rest of his presents.
The poor kid was overwhelmed and exhausted, but happy to have so many new toys. His favorite was the Leaptop from Mimi Helen and Grandpa Mark. I found the whole day exhausting even without having any company, with the cleanup, dinner (ham, potatoes au gratin, and asparagus), and taking care of a tired and in-pain toddler. Gone are our relaxing Christmas days...
Here are a few pics from Christmas!
